Swimming with dolphins was a great experience! We were lucky and saw a lot of animals up close. The boat ride alone was great! A lot of dolphins jumped around us and we were able to collect a lot of great memories. The guide and the captain were very nice and explained a lot. In everything, a lot of consideration was given to the dolphins, so that they could decide for themselves how much to show themselves. I would choose this excursion again at any time.

Fantastic! Not guaranteed that you will see dolphins, but luckily we did see them. You briefly enter the water a few times in groups of three when the dolphins swim nearby. The ride in the boat was also nice with a beautiful view of the island and the dolphins that sometimes swim next to the boat. Well worth it. Good explanation of the guide

Great team, the experience is really worth it. Just amazing to swim and hear the dolphins! only downside the reception is not well indicated on the booking website, you have to look for Pico de avantura.

It was really amazing ! Our guide was so kind and informative ! We saw a lot of dolphins. The driver was very Nice and generous as well.

Our guide made sure everyone had a chance to swim at least once with the dolphins.
